Clients extend off-cycle voluntary benefits to better promote and educate employees on new offerings, reducing the risk of getting “lost” during open enrollment.
The success of off-cycle voluntary benefits enrollment
With the increased importance of voluntary benefits and their effects on employee satisfaction, off-cycle enrollment can benefit both brokers and their clients. Clients extend off-cycle benefits enrollments to better promote and educate employees on new offerings, reducing the risk of getting "lost" during open enrollment. It also helps employers remain competitive in recruiting and retaining employees throughout the year.
Off-cycle enrollments are great for bringing attention to new benefits to employees
By introducing new benefits outside of the typical enrollment period, employees can focus on the new products without being distracted by changes to their benefits offering.
Off-cycle enrollments also make it easier for benefits teams to tailor communications around their new offerings without mixing it with open enrollment and end-of-year communications. This way, the new benefit(s) won’t get “lost” in the clutter.
